Security Council

Topic A: China and Hong Kong

After over a century being a British colony, Hong Kony developed different customs and ideologies to those common in the rest of China. In 1997, Hong Kong returned to China as an autonomous region, with greater independence and freedom for the upcoming 50 years, as agreed upon in the Hong Kong Basic Law. Recently, there have been confrontations regarding these interests. Between a bill to allow extradition from Hong Kong to Mainland China, inquiries into police brutality, and more, the international community is questioning whether China is following the Hong Kong Basic Law.

Topic B: Children and Armed conflict

Children tend to be involved in conflict, which can happen in plenty of ways: they can be harmed, kidnapped, raped, killed or recruited as child soldiers. Furthermore, their surroundings can be bombed or attacked. It's an extremely scary situation, so it is imperative to consider the effects of armed conflict on children, be them mental, or physical, which is what we will be doing in this committee.
